The Exarch class System Defense Boat is a defensive warship.
This is a class of TL–13 System Defense Boat with the best armor available to take heavy punishment. It has the best 6-G maneuver drive and an oversized fusion power plant for maximum evasive agility. It is armed with a pair of short ranged fusion cannons in the nose, a triple beam laser turret and a triple missile turret.
The crew includes a pilot/captain, a navigator/sensor ops, a medic/science officer, four engineers and four gunners and a single marine. The marine helps with damage control and routine maintenance (read cleaning). They have been pressed into service as cooks on occasion. During hostile action they conduct EVA, float over to enemy hulls, set charges to blow holes in enemy ships and conduct boarding actions.
